As a non-profit organization, Child & Family Services depends on the generosity
of donors and volunteers who support our agency in a variety of ways. It is only
through the continued generosity of our supporters that we can continue to provide
life-changing programs and services throughout Western New York.
Roy's Gives Back!
The next time that you drive past a sign consider that there may be more to it than meets the eye. That’s the case with lawn signs for Roy’s Plumbing, Heating & Cooling. Each lawn sign advertises a spot where they’ve done work for a satisfied customer, but it’s also a gift to a local charity.
Each month, Roy’s holds a contest to see which tech can post the most signs. Customers know that if they say yes, a local non-profit will receive $5. All those yeses add up! In February, Child & Family Services was the unsuspecting beneficiary of more than $1,200. It’s a welcome surprise that will go to help in our mission to promote the well-being of children and strengthen families.
Employees suggest which organizations should benefit from their work. The list is an opportunity to recognize Western New York charities important to the community while co-workers learn about non-profits that make a difference for someone they may know through work. President of Roy’s, Marsha Dollendorf explains, “We feel good about it when we do it. Everybody feels good about how much money can be given to others.”
While we do not know who suggested Child & Family Services or why, we are grateful. It feels good for us to know the work we do is noticed in the community. Thank you for that gift as well.
